The Banca Commerciale Italiana is located on 1 William Street, New York, NY 10004 and is situated on South William Street and Hanover Square. Completed in 1907, the building stands at 12 floors tall. Although an older building, 2 Washington Street has undergone various capital improvement plans over the course of its life. The building stands in close proximity to the red MTA subway line as well as the Staten Island ferry. Hundreds of different restaurants also pepper the surrounding neighborhood. The edifice’s proximity to the other office buildings that surround the neighborhood make this space ideal for an organization needing closeness to partner firms or clients. As a result, such excellent placement adds a significant amount of value for the building’s tenants. The building was originally built for J & W Seligman, an investment bank. In 1928, the building was acquired by Lehman Brothers, another investment bank, which remained headquartered there until 1980. The building is presently owned by Intesa Sanpaolo, Italy’s largest bank. In 1996, the building was designated as a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.

    Neighborhood

    Financial District

    Home to many of Manhattan’s major financial institutions, the aptly named Financial District is located towards the southern end of the island. Two of Manhattan’s major streets, Wall Street and Broad Street, can be found in the area. Some must-see places for businesses include the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank. The South Street Seaport outdoor mall has a number of shops for employees to explore.  Furthermore, Stone Street, a pedestrian-only, cobblestone street is home to numerous restaurant and bar options.  When the weather permits, take advantage of the outdoor seating areas for optimal people-watching.  

    Attractions in the area include The New York City Police Museum and the Museum of American Finance. Additionally, during times of celebration, the city comes alive for the ticker-tape parade whose route is known as the Canyon of Heroes.

    For workers who put in long hours at the office and want to live nearby, the Financial District may be the perfect option for you. In terms of average rent for office space, you will be hard-pressed to beat the Financial District’s $53/sqft.  It’s no wonder companies from a number of industries have joined the likes of Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and American Express as office neighbors in the Financial District.

    Nearby Districts Include: Tribeca, and Chinatown.
